Install TightVNC Server on the Asus Tinker board

I’m making this post for my own reference, though you can obviously use it as you wish.
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo apt-get install xfonts-base
sudo apt-get install tightvncserver
sudo apt-get install nano

Run: vncserver
Add a password
My preferred command line option is vncserver -geometry 1280x720 (this sets the resolution to 720P)

I’m currently running Asus Linaro 1.8 debian based OS from a 120GB SSD and a using it as a Plex media server, for the most part it seems to work just fine, though some high bit rate 1080p movies struggle a little. I’m investigating further.

 

Installing a solid state drive or USB drive is as easy as the Raspberry Pi with just one slight difference. Plex Media server, HTOP, Webmin, Nextcloud and more are exactly the same, they just run a little better with the extra CPU power and extra 1GB of RAM.

Dylan Thomas, 1914 - 1953

Do not go gentle into that good night,
Old age should burn and rave at close of day;
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Though wise men at their end know dark is right,
Because their words had forked no lightning they
Do not go gentle into that good night.

Good men, the last wave by, crying how bright
Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Wild men who caught and sang the sun in flight,
And learn, too late, they grieved it on its way,
Do not go gentle into that good night.

Grave men, near death, who see with blinding sight
Blind eyes could blaze like meteors and be gay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

And you, my father, there on the sad height,
Curse, bless, me now with your fierce tears, I pray.
Do not go gentle into that good night.
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.
